Anthony Dennis graduated from Oberlin College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Composition for Film. He has attended prestigious film scoring workshops, completed a senior Capstone project at Oberlin on how film music affects us, completed a three-course certificate on game audio design and production and an additional course through Berklee Online about writing and implementing video game music, and is currently at work on a cinematic symphonic rock album.

Nightmares Game - Wizard Version (Music and SFX)
I acted as the audio director for my reinterpretation of the Nightmares Unity game. in this wizard version for the Game Audio Production with Wwise course through Berklee Online in the Winter 2022 Term.
Tetris Gameplay (Music and SFX)
I scored this version of Tetris in Unity as a part of the Interactive Scoring for Games course through Berklee Online in the Winter 2021 Term. I wrote music for the main menu, stage 1, stage 2, stage 3, and sound designed stingers for game events such as flip shape, move shape, and round lose. See this link for the full gameplay clip with my music and sfx.
Luigi's Mansion 3 Gameplay (Rescore)
I rescored this gameplay clip as a part of the Interactive Scoring for Games course through Berklee Online in the Winter 2021 Term. To emulate how our music would work in the game, we used the game development flagship software, Unity, and one of the standard video game music implementation softwares, Wwise. To produce the music for this video, I interacted with this Unity world which played back the music as generated in Wwise. Due to the unusual nature of the Unity world, some of the timings are a bit off. That being said, producing the music in this manner, and setting up both the Unity project and the Wwise project helped teach me a lot about how my music would work in games.
Cooking Fever Gameplay (SFX)
I designed new sound effects for this gameplay clip from Cooking Fever as a part of the Introduction to Game Audio course through Berklee Online in the Fall 2021 Term. The music is not mine, but the professor's as this was her original project. The music is low in the mix so that you can hear my sfx more clearly.
Amuse Me! Gameplay (Music and SFX)
I acted as the audio designer on this. The final project for the Introduction to Game Audio course through Berklee Online (Fall 2021) was to build a game of any theme of our choosing in Unity and FMOD starting with the sample project the professor uploaded. I decided to make Amuse Me!, a game in which the player (the ball) is at an amusement park. I created all the sounds, music and sfx, with samples, synths, and sounds that I recorded myself.
The Last of Us gameplay (SFX Replaced) 
I Am A Banana (original score)
Sunshine Yang is the film's director. I am the composer. I Am A Banana tells the stories of how two Asian-Americans who moved from Asia to America at young ages deal with the cultural differences that come about from that move
I worked on the sound effects in this SFX Replacement of this gameplay clip. These effects include Joel’s footsteps on various terrains and materials, ambiences for the areas he goes through, his backpack, and the water he walks in. I worked on and implemented my SFX Replacement of this clip as a part of the Berklee Online course Introduction to Game Audio.
Shirin Saghaie is the film's director. I am the composer. Katie is about a mother trying to make her daughter's birthday the best that it can be, despite financial difficulties. To watch the film, please Click Here For Video.
Westworld S3E5, "Genre,"
Car Chase Scene (Rescore)
I rescored this scene as a part of the 2020 Spitfire Westworld Competition. Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan are the directors, and Ramin Djawadi is the original composer. Westworld is a futuristic HBO show about host robots from a world created by humans for humans to escape the monotony of every day life in a spaghetti Western environment who develop human-like emotions, dreams, and aspirations, which collide with the realization that they are not human but hosts in this escapist world.
Danny and the Wild Bunch
(Rescore)
I rescored this film as a part of the 8th Annual Zurich Film Festival. Robert Rugan is the writer and director, and Brooks Ball is the original composer. Danny and the Wild Bunch is a live action film combined with animated characters about a children's book author who, in an attempt to appeal to a wider audience, makes the story she's currently working on darker. That proves to be a poor choice on her end.
This is the music from my rescore of the main title scene in the comedy-drama film "Man About Town." Ben Affleck plays a Hollywood talent agent who starts taking a self-help course, because his wife cheats on him. For the course, he must keep a diary, which falls into the hands of a journalist who threatens to bring him down. Mike Binder is the director, and Larry Groupé is the original composer. At the 2017 Palomar Film Music Workshop, cofounded by Larry and Roger Neill, and featuring guest faculty Garry Schyman, George S. Clinton, and numerous others, I scored this scene. My score was recorded at Studio West, with Jason LaRocca as the audio engineer. This workshop was an incredible experience that will stay with me forever.

This is the music from my rescore for the short animated film "The Oceanmaker." After a worldwide drought, a determined pilot fights sky pirates as a last hope to secure the final cloud, and with it, the final water source on the planet. Lucas Martell is the director, and Chris Reyman is the original composer. I scored it as a part of the 2017 Marvin Hamlisch Film Scoring Contest.
